Long-running arts festivals in Denver and Colorado Springs are back for another July 4th weekend. Denver's Cherry Creek Arts Festival features more than 200 artists including almost 80 who are new to the event. Thomas Bryenton talks about one artist he's excited about, and the new development in Cherry Creek North that serves as a base for the festival this year. In Colorado Springs, the Pikes Peak Arts Fest is in its seventh year. Director Maritca Hefti hopes to inspire new artists with the art-making activities there.
